Destination guide

Casa Grande is cacti country

Rumbling over the desert tracks towards cacti-spotted Casa Grande, you're likely to feel like a lone rider crossing the plains. You'll pass remote Indian reservations, see cone-shaped mountains where dust devils billow in the crevices, and even come face to face with the giant saguaros of the Sonoran Desert. It's a wild place that can be made more than hospitable with help from contemporary Casa Grande vacation rentals. You'll bed down in plush condos or poolside villas, all on the edge of the American Wild West.

Things to do

Enjoy the city and countryside in Casa Grande

It's just a quick hop from the doorstep of any Casa Grande vacation rentals to the heart of the wild Sonoran Desert National Monument _ think hulking cacti groves and breathtaking vistas of sand seas. Even closer is the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, which rises mysteriously from the valley floor with the ruins of the Pueblo Peoples Hohokam, dating all the way back to the 13th century. Phoenix central is never too far either, complete with its rugged Camelback Mountain, acclaimed Musical Instrument Museum, and heritage exhibits at Rosson House.


Casa Grande is surrounded by nature

Imagine gawping up at colossal Organ Pipe Cacti while standing in the footsteps of old Navajo tribes. Imagine crisscrossing the Arizonan desert on horseback like the Silver Screen western heroes of old. Imagine pitching the tent under some of the clearest skies in America, or soaring over the sweeping dust plains in a hot air balloon to survey the great domain of the Wild West. Casa Grande vacation rentals really are your gateway to the dry and dusty wildernesses this corner of the country is so famous for.


Summer is truly sizzling in Casa Grande

The deserts of Arizona are deserts for a reason. The high summer months between May and August herald in scorching temperatures in the 100s. That's why it's much better to go in search of your Casa Grande vacation rentals in the cooler months of the year. You can still expect heat around the 70s and 80s between September and March, but the days will be milder and much better suited for those eager to tour the ancient Indian relics and cacti groves of the Sonoran.

Not far to the south is the Saguaro National Park, known for its otherworldly fauna and spiny giant saguaros, while the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument is another place for sinewy plant blooms and wild volcanic canyons.
